Neil Lennon has issued an update on forgotten man Marian Shved following the winger’s lack of involvement in the opening 10 games of Celtic’s season, do his comments bode well for his season?

According to Celts Are Here, Lennon revealed that the youngster still has some work to do in training to adjust and get up to speed, but the Celtic boss recognises his potential.

Right now, he’s finding the going tough and it’s hard for him to make the breakthrough. He’s a little bit frustrated, he just needs to up his tempo and his work.

It’s an adaptation period for him, he’s 21, he’s in a new country he doesn’t speak great English. We know we have a good player on our hands there and we’ll see more of him as the season progresses.

So do Lennon’s comments bode well for the rest of the season?

From what the Celtic manager has said, the comments appear to bode very well for Shved’s Hoops future.

Lennon has recognised his struggles and is looking to manage him through that as he develop’s as a player and grows into a winger with the ability to play regularly in the first team.

Though he has only made one substitute appearances thus far this season, he showed a glimpse of the talent he has with a fine goal against Nomme Kalju in his 20 minute cameo off the bench. 

Lennon clearly sees his ability and appears to be managing him well, which can only benefit him this season and in the future. 

Will Shved become a first team regular this season?
